was deeper than anyone thought. it told us how close we were to the edge. it revealed that in the last few months, the economy has done better than expected. many suggest that part of this progress is directly attributable to the recovery act. this and the other difficult but important steps we have taken have helped put the brakes on this recession. we took action to stem the spread of foreclosures by helping responsible homeowners they in their homes. we helped to revive the credit markets and open up loans for families and small businesses. we enacted a recovery act that puts tax cuts directly in the pockets of middle-class families, extended unemployment insurance for people who lost their jobs, provided relief to struggling states to prevent layoffs, and made investments to put people back to work, rebuilding and renovating roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals. i realize that none of this is much comfort for those who are out of work or struggling. when we receive our monthly jobs report next week, it is likely to show that we're continuing to lose far too many jobs in this country.

 and as a weapon that could be used against us. there has been such a thing as an emp commission that was established by congress. didn't get a whole lot of publicity. >> you put that in the past tense as well. >> exactly. >> there's some talk about reinstating the commission and they're out of business or going out of business as i discuss this, if i'm correct. particularly important to understand that, for example, the iranian regime, which has as its rallying cry and has for 30 years death to america, they know about emp as the congressional emp commission found out. and if i'm correct, they have been working -- the iranian regime, let me put it bluntly, has been working on developing the capability to launch an emp attack; is that correct? >> now you're getting into a core issue that's actually part of the book. there have been -- there has been testing going on from barges of the caspian sea of doing a launch and declaring that it's a failure. there's only one profile that fits a vertical launch for use. this to me is the equivalent of say you and i are out in a cruise and t

. she joins us with an update. hi, dana. they're headed out now for summer recess. without either the house or the senate passing health care reform. let's start with the house. where do things stand? >> reporter: this is probably going to be a crude analogy, but i'll try it anyway. you know that game on the boardwalk whack-a-mole, that's what's going on with the house democratic leadership. because before leaving for recess, they calmed a re volt among the blue dog conservative democrats. and they made some changes to their health care bill. for example, they pared down a little bit, the simplistic way of saying it, but they pared down the government-run health care option. you know bhapd? the liberal democrats, they -- that ignited a re volt among them. so they calmed the conservatives and the liberals popped up. that's basically where things stand right now. they're hoping when they come back, they can get everybody together and pass in the fall a health care plan that will pass with the democratic support that they need. but right now, you know, it's still pretty bloody among
